Emma and Mark enjoyed a fabulous Wood Norton wedding in the beautifully crafted hotel built by the Duc D’Orleans. The wonderful venue hosted their whole day from bridal and groom preparations through to a midnight sparkler exit with friends and family. The stunning grounds provided ample opportunities for beautiful photos and the rain held off for most of the day.
Emma and Mark made the most of the venue with the wedding ceremony and wedding breakfast in separate buildings and the formal family photos outside in the grounds. The weather did it’s best to try and rain but that didn’t put anyone off enjoying the day.
There are so many opportunities for photography a the Wood Norton. Taking advantage of the gap between the ceremony and breakfast we enjoyed the grounds with the newly weds. We even re-created a picture from Emma’s grandfathers wedding which was a beautiful touch for their album. We also whisked them both away later that evening for a sparkler shoot. It was a lot of fun and everyone got creative with the sparklers, especially the best man!
The happy couple held a receiving line to greet everyone before the breakfast. This gave us a great opportunity to photograph all the guests from the day. And with 4 best men speeches there was plenty of speech photo opportunities too. And of course, if you have a sword, why wouldn’t you use it to cut the cake?!!
Both the bride and groom were well looked after by their bridal and grooms parties all day and that really added to the close family feel of the day. The party started early in the evening, and as we were staying until midnight, we got to enjoy all the celebrations. It was a hectic dance floor all night, and everyone had a great time.
